The Organising Committee of the International Symposium DA-PBA 2022 are pleased to announce their 2022 edition, which will take place in Mons, Belgium, from 11th to 14th September 2022.

This symposium will be a joint meeting of two distinguished series: the 12th International Symposium on Drug Analysis and the 32nd International Symposium on Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis. It follows a series of successful symposia organized by the Belgian Society of Pharmaceutical Sciences (BSPS) in Belgium (Brussels 1983, Brussels 1986, Antwerp 1989, Liège 1992, Leuven 1995, Brussels 1998, Brugge 2002, Namur 2006, Antwerp 2010, Liège 2014, Leuven 2018.) and brings together leading scientists from all over the world in the area of fundamental and applied pharmaceutical analysis.

DA-PBA 2022 will cover all aspects of pharmaceutical and biomedical analysis.

DA-PBA 2022 offers several opportunities for scientists to present their research work during the symposium through oral communication slots and posters sessions.













DA-PBA 2022 offers several opportunities for scientists to present their research work during the symposium through oral communication slots and posters sessions.

Participants wishing to contribute with an oral communication or a poster should submit their abstract respecting the updated calendar below.

The call for abstracts submission is opened and accessible via :

  1. Affinity and bioactivity (ligand binding analytics)
  2. Biomedical and diagnostic applications (including biomarkers, biosensors, point of care analysis and in vitro diagnostic)
  3. Biopharmaceuticals and gene/cell/tissue therapies (ATMPs) (development, bioanalysis, metabolism, etc.)
  4. Drug discovery and development (including MS and imaging in ADME studies)
  5. Omics for personalized medicine (microbiome, genomics, metabolomics and proteomics, peptidomics, lipidomics, venomics, etc)
  6. Micro and nanotools in pharmaceutical analysis (SERS, nanofluidics, nanomagnets, single cell analysis, etc)
  7. Natural product pharmaceuticals
  8. Pharmaceutical regulatory quality (including novel guidelines, substandard and falsified medicines, vaccines, ATMPs, etc)
  9. Pharmaceutical processing (multivariate approaches, fingerprinting, chemometrics, QbD)​
  10. Sampling and sample preparation (including non-invasive analytical techniques)​
  11. Biophysical and biological quality control techniques for medicines
  12. Environmental fate and ecological characteristics of drugs
  13. Novel methodologies for drug analysis
